Jeffrey S. Young & William L. Simon - ICon, Steve Jobs (2nd Hand Paperback)
Subtitled : The Greatest 2nd Act in the History of Business.
iCon takes a look at the most astounding figure in a business era noted for its mavericks, oddballs, and iconoclasts.
Drawing on a wide range of sources, Jeffrey Young and William Simon provide new perspectives on the legendary creation of Apple, detail Jobs’s meteoric rise, and the devastating plunge that left him not only out of Apple, but out of the computer-making business entirely.
This unflinching and completely unauthorised portrait reveals both sides of Jobs’s role in the remarkable rise of the Pixar animation studio, also re-creates the acrimony between Jobs and Disney’s Michael Eisner, and examines Jobs’s dramatic his rise from the ashes with his recapture of Apple.
The authors examine the takeover and Jobs’s reinvention of the company with the popular iMac and his transformation of the industry with the revolutionary iPod.
iCon is must reading for anyone who wants to understand how the modern digital age has been formed, shaped, and refined by the most influential figure of the age - a master of three industries: movies, music, and computers.

"I have read a number of Apple books. but this one is probably my favourite. it doesn't just talk about apple it goes over everything. how Pixar was formed the details surrounding the merger with Disney. how he was down an out then came back. its actually quite inspirational that a person could do what he did. If you are an apple fan this book is definitely one you want to read. if you are a person that wanted to learn about how the computer industry started this is definitely a good book to read." - Google Review.
